Blizzard has released a new gameplay trailer for Overwatch 2 that focuses on Sojourn. In addition, the team released a cinematic trailer with the origin of this character.
Overwatch 2 will introduce significant engine upgrades that support larger maps for co-op (PvE) play. Furthermore, it will add a wide variety of new enemies and factions that players will encounter on their missions. The game also introduces visual enhancements designed to bring players’ favorite heroes—and their new looks for Overwatch 2 —to life in greater detail.
Overwatch 2 also represents the beginning of a new era for the series’ world-renowned competitive 6v6 play. In addition to carrying forward all of the original game’s heroes, maps, and modes—as well as existing Overwatch players’ accomplishments and loot collections—the sequel adds multiple new playable heroes to the ever-growing roster. Moreover, it will widen the scope of the world with even more maps and locations. Overwatch 2 will also add a new Push map type. In this map, two teams compete to make a robot to push the map’s objective to their opponent’s side.
The game will also allow current Overwatch players will battle side-by-side with Overwatch 2 players in PvP multiplayer. In addition, current Overwatch players will be able to play Overwatch 2 heroes and maps. As such, the core PvP experience remains dynamic and vital for today’s community in the Overwatch 2 era.
Blizzard plans to launch the game’s beta phase later this month.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
